Comments: A great source of information and history about the nurses of the Royal Australian Army Nursing Corps during World War One – now long out of print and very desirable title.
Nightingales in the Mud draws on many first-hand accounts and previously unpublished accounts of the work of Australian nurses in the Great War to tell an extraordinary story of courage and companionship under conditions of great hardship – in the mud of Flanders, among the cholera cases in India, on the hospital ships during the Gallipoli campaign, on the Afghanistan border, in Vladivostock, in mosquito infested Macedonia, and in the Sinai desert.
It is the story of professionalism and endurance in advertsity, told in the words of nurses and those who owe their lives to their skills. Anyone who enjoys stirring tales set in dangerous times will find it hard to put down.
